Zhovti Vody is a city located in Dnepropetrovsk region of Ukraine. It is one of the youngest cities in the country.

The name of the city is closely related to the river Zheltaya (Yellow). In 1648, the insurgent army headed by Bohdan Khmelnitsky defeated the army of Poland here. It was the key moment in the struggle of the Ukrainians and the Poles.

The first settlement appeared on the banks of the Zheltaya River in the middle of the 17th century, and it was named Zheltoye.

By the end of the 18th century, the population of the village was about 200. Rich deposits of iron ore were discovered nearby at the end of the 19th century. Also, in 1950, deposits of uranium ore were discovered.

In 1957, the settlement Zholtaya Reka (“yellow river”) located near the river Zholtaya was renamed into the town Zhovti Vody (“yellow waters”).

The town was constructed not on the bank of the river but on a flat plateau as the lowland surface was favorable for the construction.
